Connections Spotlight — CCC&Y presents special ‘Caring for Children Lifetime Achievement Award’ to Julianne E. Hartzell

| October 4, 2022

The Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth will present a special “Caring for Children Lifetime Achievement Award” to local educator Julianne E. Hartzell during its 50th Anniversary Celebration on Oct. 27.

“I just adore Julianne and I’m so excited to honor her in this way,” said Virginia Watahomigie, executive director of CCC&Y. “She has been so very giving with her time, not just to me personally but to the organization as a whole.

“The contributions Julianne has made, and continues to make, have had tremendous impact on the organization and the wider community. We are very fortunate to benefit from her knowledge and giving nature.”

Hartzell has volunteered her time to serve as a past board president for the Coalition, and currently serves on the group’s Action & Outreach Committee.

Each year, the Coalition honors a group of members of the community throughout Coconino County for promoting the well-being of children and families.

To celebrate the group’s 50th anniversary, the Coalition decided to create this special award.

Hartzell has long served youth in the region through various roles in the community, including as a long-time teacher in the Flagstaff Unified School District, a 12-year member of the FUSD Governing Board, as board member for CCC&Y, the FACT after-school program, the Flagstaff Community Foundation and the United Way of Northern Arizona.

| October 4, 2022

Dear Supporter,

We’re excited to share that The Arizona Republic Editorial Board has endorsed Prop 308, urging Arizona voters to vote YES!

“The measure isn’t about immigration reform, nor is it about public assistance for non-citizens. Or a carve-out on benefits for a special class of individuals. At its core, Proposition 308 is about doing right by a group of Arizonans with higher aspirations.”

Friends of ASBA Educating Arizona — Education Doomsday Countdown

Friends of ASBA Educating Arizona — Education Doomsday Countdown

| October 4, 2022

Today marks a significant step closer to education doomsday. There are less than 150 days left for the legislature to intervene and override the Aggregate Expenditure Limit (AEL). If the legislature fails to act by March 1, 2023, then district schools across Arizona will be forced to cut $1.3B statewide from their budget.

When the Legislature passed this year’s budget, it was a known fact that the money appropriated to K-12 education would exceed the Aggregate Expenditure Limit contained in the Arizona Constitution.

Help us make sure this issue remains top of mind and reshare our daily doomsday countdown clock posts on Facebook and Twitter or share your own post using the links below to tell us what  education doomsday means to your school community:

Arizona Center for Economic Progress + Children’s Action Alliance — Proposition 132 is a Dangerous Power-Grab That Will End Majority Rule in Arizona

| October 4, 2022

The Arizona Center for Economic Progress and Children’s Action Alliance urges voters to reject Proposition 132 by voting NO on this November’s ballot. Proposition 132 is a part of a series of tricks proposed by the Arizona legislature to convince voters to give up their power. Proposition 132 moves the goal post for passing initiatives and referendums from a simple majority to 60 percent, which would severely limit the ability of Arizonans to raise revenue and invest in their future.
